Why Sleep Matters

What happens while you sleep has a huge impact on your life. People who don’t get enough sleep have problems making decisions, solving problems, being productive, controlling their emotions, and coping with change. They are also at greater risk of major health issues such as heart disease, diabetes, and stroke.

What Happened to Sleep?

Before electric lighting, people’s lives revolved around the natural light cycle of the sun. The rise of electric lighting and electronics means we don’t have to depend on the sun for light, but this new lifestyle also means our bodies aren’t able to prepare for sleep like they used to.

How Drift Light Helps

The Drift Light has been designed to mimic a sunset by slowly dimming over 37 minutes. This gives your body that gradual shift from light to darkness and gives you the opportunity to engage in relaxing activities to help you feel sleepy.

The Drift Light can also be set to Moonlight Mode, which dims down to a nightlight mode. Moonlight mode gives off just enough light to keep you safe without using up an outlet, or for kids that need a little bit of light to sleep.

Light Temperature

+ Problem

The bluer light emitted from electronics and some energy efficient bulbs is especially bad for sleep. Studies done at Harvard and the University of Toronto have shown that blue light suppresses melatonin (your body’s natural sleep agent) twice as much as other kinds of light.

+ Solution

The Drift Light helps solve this problem in two ways. First, it is designed to slowly dim over time to help promote relaxation and an increase in melatonin. It also uses a much warmer form of light than other bulbs. By reducing the amount of blue light emitted, which also increases melatonin and helps get you ready for sleep.

Sleep Routine

+ Problem

Falling asleep is highly dependent on behavior. Any disruptions in your bedtime routine may lead to difficulty falling asleep. Our bodies don’t adjust well to abrupt changes. Having an easy transition from waking to sleeping helps prepare you for sleep.

Safety

+ Problem

Nightlights on your outlets are an unsightly compromise for safety.

Kids Stay In Bed

+ Problem

Routines are important to help anyone get to sleep. But for kids, routines are even more important. Even slightest of disruptions will throw off their sleep routines and cause them to wake up, and then come wake you up. Having an easy transition from waking to sleeping helps.

+ Solution

The Drift Bulb automaticaly dims over a period of 37 minutes, the same time as an average sunset,easing kids to sleep while keeping them from getting up and turning thelight off . For kids that need a little bit of light to sleep, the Drift Light can be set to Moonlight Mode, which dims down to a nightlight mode.

Random flickering

We bought this light because my wife's epilepsy gets triggered by turning off the light at night, and so we thought that having a fading light would work better. Unfortunately, about half the time, the light itself flickers slightly, which, of course, triggers her epilepsy. I can't figure out what makes it flicker sometimes and not other times. So, at the moment, we're basically just using it as a very expensive light bulb. Super bummer.

We're sorry to hear you are having trouble with the bulb. Our tech support team will reach out to run some trouble shooting.

Works great!

Pros: Great help in getting me sleepy enough to fall asleep! works great!Cons: must have a lamp with a switch that pushes in and out. I didn't seem to work with a switch that you turn (rotate). Also- not really a con- You have to leave enough of a pause between turning off to reset and the on-off-on for the midnight setting so that it doesn't think i'm trying to do on-off-on-off-on for the moonlight setting.Other: It would be nice to have a choice of the 37 minute count-down and a longer one. Sometimes I would just like to read a little longer before it turns off.

Helps get sleepy

Pros: Great light, the last one lasted a couple years at least. It dims to off in 30min with one a turn until one blink, or to just dim with a turn until 2blinks. I use it in a double switch lamp so it complicates the on/off function and may shorten it’s life. But it still works and helps get sleepy. It is just one element among several I use to help with sleep, but it does help. Got it at Amazon first Tim, but it was cheaper this time on the Sewell site.Cons: CostOther:
